Statred out fast with the first mile being 6:56 and the last being 6:51, rest over 7 Min. Was not here to run a PR but felt very good and after mile 5 I felt I could sustain the pace.
What would you do differently?:

Wore a singlet, bit too hot
Post race
Warm down:

usual stretches and walked back to car 1.5M

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I did not consider a PR here, I biked the day before 45M (hard) had a cigar in the evening and some drinks.

Event comments:

This is an excellt Spring race if you get a good position to start, otherwise don't try for PR's here as it can get crowded. The course is very nice, organisation is very good too. Take the opportunity to upgrade your T-Shirt they are great.

Dude!  You smoked me - very nice race.

I broke a PR too, by over 10 minutes - shocked!  Great job on the run!
